Sencha is typically an everyday tea made from a blend of green tea leaves grown in full sunlight. The OHH SENCHA 18 is a special green tea grown on the misty mountains of Yame, made by a small family tea producer who has consistently taken the national top prizes in tea competitions.
SENCHA 18 is made entirely from the single cultivar Okuyutaka, and is grown all on one farm. This is the a very pure expression of the Yame terroir. Our sencha has been shade-grown for a few days before harvesting, deepening its colour and heightening the umami.
